Master Class - Anti-money laundering for NOvA-registered lawyers

The Rock banner 02

The Netherlands Bar (NOvA) requires every lawyer on its register to complete a course on anti-money laundering regulation. By following this Master Class, lawyers registerd with the NOvA will meet these AML-related requirements and earn two professional training credits.

During the Master Class, Maarten van der Weijden en Birgit Snijder - Kuipers will address recent developments in AML legislation and NOvA policy, and provide you with a draft AML policy for registered lawyers at your company. They will share various lessons learned about the Dutch central register for ultimate beneficial owners (UBOs). Also they will look at the impact of upcoming Dutch legislation implementing the Commission's July 2021 AML package and share our recent experiences with DAC6 reporting. Throughout the session, Maarten and Birgit encourage interactive discussion among all participants.
